This is the new website of CUGC. The old website has been archived
. Although none
of the information on the old website should be considered official, there is
still a lot of useful information on gliding in general available which we
will be moving to wiki.cugc.org.uk
Watch this space!
We are a student-run society at the University of Cambridge that flies gliders,
unpowered planes. They are launched using either a winch or towed behind
another aircraft. Relying on rising air currents alone, gliders can stay
airborne for many hours and travel hundreds of kilometres.
Never flown before? Then sign up for a trial flight: our introductory flying
lesson and learn to fly.
We are affiliated with Cambridge Gliding Centre
(the club from which we operate) and the
British Gliding Association (the main gliding association in the UK).
